Helmet.insure is a peer-to-peer Crypto assets insurance trading platform on Binance Smart Chain, written by option trading logic, which allows anyone to create any insurance policy easily in the market.



Unlike other insurance products you may have used, Helmet specializes in providing price-shield insurance for BSC assets, the type of insurance depending on token holders and traders.



There are 2 roles in this insurance protocol: 

  • Policy Supplier: a participant who deposits denominated assets to supply policy on the market.

  • Policy Holder: a participant who wants to hedge price loss.


The project team, as one of the policy suppliers, provides 2 types of insurance policy to users: cover 50% off and cover 100% up (cover miss out). Both policy durations are 14 days.



Cover 50% Off is a kind of bearish insurance to prevent "underwater". The policy holder can pay a premium to insure their bearish assets at a very small cost. The policy holder will get profits when the value of the token insured before the expiration date is lower than "half" of the price at the time of issuance. If the spot price is not less than the policy price at the end of expiration date, the policy supplier can steadily obtain the premium as interest.



Cover Miss Out is a kind of insurance against 'fear of missing out'. Policy holder pays a tiny cost for a "call' to prevent missing the pice of X denominated asset rise.



If the insured token's price is higher than double the issue price before the expiration date, the holder will get a profit. If the value of the Token is not more than double, the policy supplier will receive a stable premium as interest.



Helmet.insure has issued its own governance token $HELMET. The token price shows a high correlation with the protocol’s volume, like we pointed out in 6 Indicators for Trading BSC DeFi Tokens - Boost Your Trading Profit.
